What to say when someone says “Direct Mail” isn’t important

Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend!

Convo for the weekend entails a statement that comes up from time to time in the printing world: “Direct Mail isn’t important”. With the buzz of social media, email campaigns and t.v commercials, people have this idea that direct mail is a waste of time and is not as effective as it once was.

Here are some statistics that may come as a shock:

85% of consumers sort through and read selected pieces of mail everyday.

73% of consumers say that they would prefer receiving new product announcements and offers by mail than by email.

90% of consumers say they want to receive sales and promotions via direct mail.

Response rates for direct mail has consistently been 3 times higher than email

What to say when.. Print isn’t Green

Have a great Memorial Day weekend everybody!

Convo for the weekend:

Being “Green” is great, however, many people think they are saving the environment by reading information via digital text. We are here to tell you that this isn’t always the best choice.

Even though at this point in time it is the new fad, the long-term effects are not good for our Earth.

Did you know that: 63.5% of all paper consumed in the USA was recovered for recycling in 2010, which has increased by 77% since 1990. Compared to the 3.16 million tons of electronic waste that was generated in just 2008 alone (can you image now in 2013?)… and that 50-80% of that electronic waste is disposed over seas unsafely.

“Printed products are a renewable resource. Once a printed product has served its purpose, it re-enters the cycle as a new product”..unlike most electronic products.



What to say when someone says “using paper kills trees”..

Have a great weekend everybody!

Convo for the weekend:

Commercial printers are bombarded with the simple statement: “Using paper kills trees”.

This is the perfect time to tell everyone that commercial printers (like ourselves) do everything we can to preserve the Earth.

Many people have this image in their head that commercial printers are using random tress from random places and just cold heartedly cutting them down. We are here to tell you that this is not the case.

-Did you know that: even though the primary raw material for our industry is trees, they are actually from well-managed forests or farms that are constantly being re-planted?

It has also came to our attention that: A report from the Sweden’s Royal Institue of Technology calculated that a person using a 160-watt computer with a 120-watt screen (which is a normal computer usage) who reads an online newspaper for 30 minutes a day actually does more environmental damage that if they had purchased the paper edition.
